Cycle Japan

Cycle from ancient Kyoto to the bustling city of Tokyo on this 13-day Japan cycling tour. Venturing off the beaten track and into the highlands, you’ll cycle along beaches, coastal roads and remote countryside, stopping to enjoy mouthwatering seafood and traditional Japanese farmhouses. You’ll even hop on the Shinkansen bullet train to experience Japan at a different pace before arriving in the heart of the capital.

Cycle Turkey

Cycling the Baltic States

Explore the Baltic States by bicycle on this guided route through Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. Discover the fascinating island castle in Trakai and cycle around the shores of the surrounding lake, cycle and watch for birds at the Curonian Lagoon and ride alongside giant sand dunes and white sand beaches the Curonian Spit National Park. 

Cycle Bosnia and Montenegro

Explore Sarajevo’s melting pot of different cultures and religions before cycling to the foot of Bosnia’s Mount Igman, peddling past fresh-water streams, rocky outcrops and ethereal glassy lakes. Pedal through dramatic alpine scenery to the Monastery of Ostrog. In the traditional village of Virpazar we explore the shores of Lake Skadar - teeming with birdlife.

Cycling in Georgia

Discover Georgia's beautiful mountain landscapes from the saddle of your bike picking the way along the Mtkvari Valley.Step back in time to discover the ancient Silk Road cave town of Uplistsikhe with its complex of simple dwellings, churches and halls cut into the cliff-face and try to imagine how life was here in the first millennium BC. 

Cycle Albania

A largely undiscovered gem at the heart of the Balkans, Albania is a beautiful place to explore by bike. Starting in the Gramos Mountains we traverse the dramatic landscape on stunning rides that lead us eventually to the Albanian Riviera with golden sands and turquoise seas.

Cycle Italy

Escape to the unspoiled coastline of Italy’s Cilento National Park to enjoy secluded beaches lapped by crystal-clear turquoise water, pine-forested hillsides, soaring limestone cliffs and picturesque fishing villages. Climb to the grassy plateau of Ciolandrea for panoramic views across the rugged coastline, sample Cilento wines made in a nearby vineyard, and discover the mighty Greek temples of Ancient Paestum.

Cycle Morocco - Atlas to the Sahara

Take the road less-travelled and discover towering sand-dunes, lush oases and vast mountain ranges in between fortified cities, markets towns and desert camps. Cycling in Morocco gives you new riding experiences every day, whether you're freewheeling down Atlas  mountain passes towards your lunchtime refreshments or peddling through shady oases.

Cycle Romania

Romania might not be an obvious choice for a cycling holiday, but with fairytale Gothic castles and colourful medieval towns to discover as well as quiet back roads winding up through the lush pine forests of Piatra Craiului National Park, a ride through the southern Carpathian Mountains will not disappoint.

Cycle Kerala

Take in southern India by bike, along Kerala's backroads and through a landscape of tropical forests and spice, tea and rubber plantations. Visit temples, forts and a wildlife sanctuary along the way, and when the cycling is done for the day unwind with a sunset canoe trip, a swim next to a waterfall and a boat cruise on one evening.
